The Internet broke as a photo of a boy sleeping on the ground with his puppy in his arms went viral. The shot was taken in the city of Manila, Philippines.
Users were upset that a boy sleeping on the asphalt was of no attention to anybody, despite the fact that cars were going by and people were wandering about since there was a railway station nearby that was constantly full.
A large number of concerned citizens demanded that the country’s authorities help the boy.
When the facts were investigated further, it was discovered that the boy is 13 years old . He is an orphan who lives on the street since his parents died of tuberculosis when he was little. The dog, on the other hand, remained the sole loving and close companion.
The locals are aware of the homeless child; yet, they have become used to him and have stopped paying attention to him.
Nicholas asks for alms every day, according to the guy who took this heartbreaking shot, and uses the money to feed himself and his dog.
Now, we don’t know whether the government helped the boy or not.
